Council gets notice to get rid of

Bromley odour by January 2022

THE CITY council has

until January next year to

stop offensive odour from

lingering beyond the site of

its controversial organics

processing plant.

Environment Canterbury

has served the city council an

abatement notice requiring that

it must stop the discharge of

“offensive and objectionable”

beyond its Living Earth plant by

January 31, 2022.

This comes

following a

move by the city

council last year

to redevelop

the composting

plant in Metro

Pl, Bromley, to

Helen

Beaumont

mitigate ongoing odour issues

plaguing nearby residents.

Said Helen Beaumont, city

council head of three waters

and waste: “We know that

people have had enough of

the odour problems and want

the situation resolved. Work is

already underway developing

the detailed scope of works

and user requirements that will

form the basis of the tender

documentation for the redevelopment

project.”

Pupils prepare gardens for festival

PLANTS, FLOWERS and

vegetables are sprouting at

schools across the city as they

finalise their designs for the

Grow Ōtautahi garden festival

next month.

Banks Avenue School and

five others will be taking part

in the Rātā Foundation School

Gardens exhibitions at the

three-day festival.

It comes after the event was

cancelled last year due to the

Covid-19 pandemic.

Pupils have been sharing

unique stories of their communities

by creating special

gardens.

The Rātā Foundation School

Gardens celebrate the best of

the local environment, with

a view to sustainability and

education.

Festival director Sandi

MacRae said she was impressed

at the work and detail in the

school gardens.

“What I’m seeing in the

lead-up to the event is really

blowing me away. The schools

are not only creating wonderful

reflections of their local communities,

they’re also weaving

the work into their learning

with a focus on community,

sustainability, creativity and

celebrating our environment,”

she said.

SPROUTING: Pupils across the city, including at Banks Avenue School, have been

preparing to show off their unique gardens at the Grow Ōtautahi festival next

month.

“The plants are growing well

and I can’t wait to see them

on-site in the Christchurch

Botanic Gardens.

“The commitment of the

teachers, children and local

communities involved is inspirational,

and I know visitors

to the festival will be delighted

with what they have created.”

Rātā Foundation chief

executive Leighton Evans said

the festival provided a unique

opportunity to celebrate the

Garden City while increasing

environmental awareness.

It also supported educating

children about sustainable

growing practices.

“The Rātā Foundation School

Gardens provide a pathway for

building the next generation of

gardeners and eco-warriors,”

said Evans.

The Grow Ōtautahi Christchurch

Garden Festival Trust is

closely monitoring the national

Covid-19 situation, following

all advice from the Government

and will respond “swiftly”

to any changing circumstances.

Said MacRae: “We are all

focused on the task at hand and

gearing-up to welcome people

to the first-ever Grow Ōtautahi.

This has always included a

sharp focus on public safety

and we’ll have appropriate

hygiene and health-related

processes in place.”

$22m investment

needed to

upgrade facility

• From page 1

The plant processes food and green

waste collected through the city’s

kerbside collection, which is then

turned into compost.

The city council will invest

about $22 million to upgrade the

technology and construct a second

processing building ensuring all parts

of the composting process occurred

indoors.

Beaumont said the organisation

was committed to completing the

re-development of the plant as soon

as possible.

“We have engaged a contractor to

assist us in completing this work as

quickly and efficiently as possible and

intend to bring a procurement plan

to elected members in March for final

approval,” she said.

“We have already let the market

know that we will soon be seeking

tenders for this project and will formally

call for expressions of interest

this month.”

Once a contractor was chosen, the

city council will be able to determine

firm timelines for the project, but

“work will begin this year.”

“The speed of implementation will

be a criteria that we consider when

assessing the tenders as we know this

work needs to be done quickly,’’ said

Beaumont.

CALLS HAVE been made to

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

year.

The city council is proposing

an average rates increase of 4.65

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

which is currently under public

consultation until April 5 and

will be finalised before July 1.

The 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.

Manukura Kōrero - success

Koe te whakawhiti o te rā

You are like the shining of the sun

What a week it has been! If I had to

describe how angitu/successful

ākonga at Haeata have been I would

say ka mau te wehi! It has been

awesome over these first two weeks.

Haeata warmly congratulates

the ākonga who are part of Te Whānau

o Kōmanawa (supported by East

Empire Sports Inc.) who achieved 1st

place at the Waka Ama competition last

weekend at Nelson Lakes.

We love seeing success in the lives

of our ākonga outside of Haeata!

Ka mau te wehi!

Ākonga in uniform - yes!

Ākonga engaged in purposeful

learning - yes!

Ākonga supporting each other - yes!

Ākonga enjoying kura - yes!

With the unexpected move to COVID-19 Alert Level 2 Haeata moved

quickly to reestablish the protocols to keep us all safe. Regular hand-hygiene,

sensible distancing, and stringent cleaning protocols for all surfaces

in hapori have been implemented.

Our motto - “take nothing for granted and be vigilant.”

Fortunately we received notification today from the Prime Minister that

we have moved to COVID-19 Alert Level 1, so as we all breathe a

collective sigh of relief we say - “back to business as usual!”

The relentless pursuit of personal angitu/success.

Our success depends on our collective commitment to personal

accountability and personal definitions of excellent. I have been so impressed

to hear Ākonga say, this is what success looks like for me and

this is how I am going to achieve it this year. Success only comes after

clear goals are set, a plan is in place and a commitment to hard work.

Being a success only happens if the individual does the mahi - and I see

that at Haeata everyday.

I see our Ākonga are putting in the hard yards already and I am very

proud of them all! They do indeed - shine like the sun!

Nō reira he maurea kai whiria! - Arohanui.

Nō reira huri noa i pūmanawa o Haeata - Arohanui.

NCEA Whānau Hui

(Assistant Principals for the senior school)

Te Mātāpuna Mātātahi | Children’s University

Just before lockdown we enrolled 20 ākonga at Te Mātāpuna Mātātahi | Children’s

University from Kōmanawa hāpori. Te Mātāpuna Mātātahi | Children’s University aims to

raise young people’s aspirations for higher education and encourage lifelong learning. The

University of Canterbury and Lincoln University are working in partnership to deliver the

programme, which is the first of its kind in New Zealand.

We were so excited to see the success in 2020, that

this year we have managed to get 40 spots for 2021.

This is an exciting opportunity for our ākonga top

experience success in 2021!

As we continue to focus on success in

2021, we are warmly inviting all whānau

with years 11-13 students at Haeata to

attend a whānau hui on the 10th March

4pm-7pm. This will be a great time for

parents and ākonga to understand what

opportunities there are for them at

Haeata, and how they can best achieve

their goals.

The kaiako look forward to meeting our

whānau to share with them the exciting

possibilities that await their ākonga in

the future!
